Need experts opinions. Have disk. Here is smart output of Seagate "Barracuda 7200.10 family":

Raw_Read_Error_Rate = 0 & Hardware_ECC_Recovered = 6 ... how it is possible?

And I have read that Raw_Read_Error_Rate on Seagates has always big value... is it right? is it ok?

Next disk is Western Digital RE3 .. 320Gb .. here is smart:

200 Multi_Zone_Error_Rate   0x0008   200   200   000    Old_age   Offline      -       0

The disk is new... but Raw_Read_Error_Rate is raising .. about +2/+3 per hour... What does it mean? There is no big load on IO ... there 200 web sites... WA in top is less 1% ...
